The Bentley Continental GT Supersports
In the 1920s, the British company Bentley, now part of the VW Group, stood less for luxury and comfort and more for sporting success. A fact that also applied to the first model to be developed by the company in 1921. This almost forgotten sporting tradition was to be revived under the new brand owner Volkswagen. Six years after having presented the first model of a new Bentley era, the Bentley Continental GT, the manufacturer presented a Supersports based on the Bentley Continental GT in 2009 in memory of the great racing past. The Bentley Continental Supersports was at that time, the fastest Bentley ever built. The Bentley Continental Supersports was initially presented as a two-seater coupé based on the Continental GT before a convertible four-seater version of the sports model became available, the Supersports Cabrio. From the outside, the performance-enhanced versions differed only slightly from the less motorized coupés and convertibles of the Continental series. For example, the Supersports were designed with narrow air vents in the engine hood and enlarged raised front air intakes. In addition, the rear of the car was a slightly modified around the oval exhaust pipes. One special feature in the design of the Continental Supersports: Compared to the conventional models in the series, the weight of the Supersports car has been reduced by more than 100 kilograms. This was possible by doing without rear seats in the coupé. The lower weight mainly improved the acceleration values.
Thanks to its W12 engine with biturbo charging developed by VW, the conventional Continental series coupé already had some 411 kW (560 PS) power available. This value was to be increased once more for the Bentley Continental Supersports and was raised above the level of the Bentley Continental GT Speed, which could already access 449 kW (610 PS). For the Supersports, the engineers modified the 6.0 litre engine of the Continental GT once again, achieving a power output of 463 kW (630 PS). That was enough for the Bentley Continental Supersports to achieve a top speed of around 330 km/h. The Brit's in-house record holder needed 3.9 seconds for the spurt from zero to one hundred.
The vehicle on offer here is one of the first vehicles of the Continental GT Supersports model. The car was delivered to an Asian collector in beginning of 2010. The first registration took place on the 1st. of February 2010. In the following years, however, the vehicle was hardly moved and so the speedometer reading shows just 4,190 km almost 10 years after its initial delivery. The extremely rare colour combination in connection with its flawless visual and technical overall condition certainly make this vehicle more than interesting for enthusiasts and collectors of the Bentley brand.
